Ukraine’s citizen Hennadiy Lymeshko, the former serviceman of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, must have testified before the Russian FSB after being tortured and pressured upon. His mother Rymma Ryzhkova told that in an interview with Krym.Realii outlet.
‘It is clearly visible he had his nose broken, and there are abrasions on his cheeks. Anyone can see they (the FSB, - 112 International) put some make-up on his face to cover the trails of beatings; they just left a black eye visible. And now he tells the whole story just like they told him to. We never heard about his military training,’ Ryzhkova said.
According to her, the last time Lymeshko contacted his wife was on August 9; he’s been staying in Mariupol since May, after being fired from the Armed Forces for professional nonconformity. ‘He went to Mariupol to earn some money for his child’s treatment,’ Rymma Ryzhkova concluded.
The detainee’s wife Iryna Lymeshko also insists he’s innocent. ‘I watched the TV report about his detention. He’s not guilty, that’s all I can say,’ she said.
Earlier, FSB claimed that the "agent" Ukraine’s Security Service was detained in the occupied Crimea. It is reported that Lymeshko is a native of Kharkiv region and previously served in Donbas conflict zone as a senior intelligence officer of in-depth intelligence in one of the military units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
The Court of Simferopol sentenced Lymeshko for two months of prison.
Later, the SBU claimed that the information about the detention of the Ukrainian citizen is another provocation by the FSB.
